Exclamation 2016 Camaro drops some camouflage near the Nurburgring! 9/29/14

The next generation Chevrolet Camaro has been spied a couple of times in the US already. Today we caught the first prototype testing in Europe near the Nurburgring where it was caught in much less disguise. This all-new Camaro has dropped the previous black heavy camouflage and just appears in black and white camo.

Keep in mind that there is likely still fake paneling as part of the camouflage. For example, the shape of the headlights and tail lights still remain very obscured (unlikely to be small circular shapes as shown).

The front headlight camouflage reminds us of the 5th generation Camaro prototype headlights

So far so good. I like what im seeing! The front fscia is looking more closer to the t4 bumblebee. Look at the shape around the headlights being so thin. Halos might be going away in favour of the led stripe.

Whoa... finally...

Let the new renders commence...

BTW, kinda dated looking rear spoiler... Hope that it isn't final... or, if it is final, hope it can be deleted.

The wheels looks good. The car seems to be similar to the TM4 bumble bee...The hood and front bumper...

The rear reminds me of a Mitsubishi Lancer with the lights kind of, but I am not judging until I see the whole thing! The front kind of looks like a styling cue similar to the BMW i8, how it has that deep slope and thin grill line.

Also don't care much for the spoiler... EEK.

Those wheels are nice, too.

We will soon be able to see the whole thing! I am confident that GM knows what we want, and can deliver. No way in heck will the Camaro be degraded. It'll definitely be an improvement, no matter what they do!

EDIT: OH GOD LOOK AT THAT MUFFLER. I thought mine were bad...

Awesome way to start out a new week!

I have much to say, but not enough time to say it. I'll just say that it looks good so far, but I have a few concerns. Still can't draw any real conclusions about this car (unless you're someone who was expecting radically different design changes).

As Tran said I doubt the headlights or lamps are correct either, and that plays up a huge part of the design in my opinion. But you can see what appears to be an outline of the shape of the rear lamps and I'm not sure I'm wild about the outline, but again too early to say.

Wheels look cool...but if I can I'd swap them out for my ZL1 replicas.

Definitely splitting the grill like the Pontiac models. Not sold on it.

Maybe that split is where the Chevrolet Emblem will go... so it may not really be a "split" per say.

Just noticed... Why does that section piece above the license plate area stick out so far?

Well, they officially played it safe :( Not much more to speculate on now other than what the lighting and trim pieces will look like.

The 5th gen was/is a gorgeous car so I'm not complaining too much here. If its smaller and lighter perhaps I will be a buyer this time around.

I can't tell much without something to scale it too but it looks a lot smaller to me.

The gas cap is definitely on the passenger side, which I don't like.

It looks somewhat like the T4 car but still pretty aggressive to me.

Has the stupid, massive muffler.

Looks like the diffuser doesn't come half way up the rear fascia which should please a lot of people.

I really hope it doesn't have that upper grille split. Maybe they are hiding the Camaro banner badge under there?

The camo tape goes pretty far up the windows so it might not have such a gun slit feel to it.


And STILL no video? Come on, I'm dying to hear this thing haha.

Camaro

This time it paid off to buy the first model year. History repeats itself. Just like 69 as the years go buy GM recks a good thing.

I was thinking the same thing myself. It almost has a hatchback/fastback look to it, but that might be just because the camo on it disguises the actual lines of the car. Somone above mentioned the 'flatening' of lines, which I thought as well.

Fake headlights and tail lights. Front end still has camo plates on it. Hood vents are gone. This is closer to the final product, though not indicative of it entirely. Still waiting. Lol

The split bumper is a good looking car. Late 2nd and the 3rd gen look like ass though
